New Year, New Hope …….. New Home?

99.9 per cent of us cannot wait to see the back of 2020.

And what better time to draw a line under this ‘unprecedented’ year than the opportunity to welcome in a new year. And one which brings new hope.

Below are 10 of the most common resolutions people have made over the past five years, according to polling website You.Gov.

  1. Exercise more.
  2. Eat more healthily.
  3. Lose weight.
  4. Budget finances better.
  5. Learn something new.
  6. Spend more time with friends and family. (Fingers crossed).
  7. Get more sleep.
  8. Reduce stress.
  9. Travel more (here’s hoping).
  10. Focus on spiritual growth.

And here are five of the most common resolutions we hear home seekers in Chelmsford make.

  1. A home with more room.
  2. A home nearer loved ones and/or good schools.
  3. A home with a room or space enabling working from home. (A new one for 2021).
  4. A home with a bigger garden or easy access to open space.
  5. A home with friendly neighbours.

At the heart of people’s resolutions is always a sense of hope.

And hope is something we’ll all be holding onto as we enter 2021.

And at Martin & Co we’re hopeful the next 12 months will be much better than what we’ve endured in 2020.

Finally, we’d like to thank all our clients, colleagues, and our community for your support this year.

Here’s to hope, happiness and to happier times ahead.
